Field Music Commontime on 180g 2LP + Download
Also Available on Limited Edition Colored Double 180g Vinyl
Written and recorded in spontaneous bursts over six months in their Wearside studio, Commontime is built around the Brewis brothers (David and Peter) playing and singing together again, but also features a wider array of players, including original Field Music keyboardist Andrew Moore, Peter's wife Jennie Brewis and new member of the live band Liz Corney on vocals, plus a panoply of other players. "We wanted to embrace being a duo and, perversely, that made us feel more comfortable about all of those conspicuous cameos" reveals David. Over the fourteen songs of Commontime, real life conversations are replayed, acquaintances come and go, hard won friendships are left to drift and diffuse snap shots of the everyday are pulled together into what must rank amongst Field Music's best works to date.
